Overview

What to Expect

New Orleans' Garden District is one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in the nation, next to it is bustling Magazine Street.

If you're looking to explore outside of the French Quarter area, and see how  people live and have lived, this excursion is perfect for you or your group.

First stop is Lafayette Cemetery, the oldest city-owned cemetery. You'll learn the burial practices and traditions that make the cemeteries unique.

Then, during the tour, you'll set eyes on the current residences of New Orleanians Anne Rice, Sandra Bullock, and John Goodman. You'll see houses featured in movies such as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. As well, you'll see the Buckner Mansion of American Horror Story fame.

Included in this tour is a stroll along beautiful Magazine Street, historically the line between the rich and working class of NOLA. Then walk a few blocks from Magazine into the Irish Channel where you'll see the famous "shotgun houses."

The Garden District was founded in 1832, between St. Charles Avenue, First Street, Magazine Street and Toledano Street. Originally its own city, it was annexed by New Orleans in 1852. You'll learn more about this and other historic facts as you see the neighborhood's gorgeous mansions and their notable large, opulent lawns.
